These are the chocolate brownies I grew up with and therefore another of my mother's recipes. However, after trying them, we are both complete converts to Nigella's delicious and gooey Snow Flecked Brownies in Feast. But, I am still posting the old recipe as it makes for brownies that are easier to serve at large gatherings as they are not very gooey. I also enjoy the incorporated nuts. And, after all, the world can't have too many brownie recipes!
- ¾ cup flour
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ⅓ cup butter
- ¾ cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
- 12 ounces chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 medium eggs
- ½ cup chopped nuts (optional)
